Join Couchsurfing to see Angela’s full profile. It’s free!
Hi! I am a student studying physics and astrophysics at Caltech in the US, and traveling around to New and interesting places when I can!
I also collect strange/local/ethnic instruments, and I'd love to tell you about my collection.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I love meeting new and interesting people and exploring different places around the world, and couchsurfing is a great opportunity to do it! I just got the opportunity to do some traveling and started using couchsurfing to make it more fun.
